Yea, definitely something to be said for graphical STYLE. The photo-realism stuff is impressive, but I actually think it's rarely the "right" graphical choice for a game. I don't know. I'm an old-timer. For me, games are supposed to be escapes from reality, not...reality itself lol

So I tend to enjoy games with ultra stylized graphics, fantastical worlds, etc. I LOVE the cartoony graphics of Warcraft III/World of Warcraft, for example. So many people lost their collective minds when WoW first came out in that style, but here we are 15 years later...lol

Looking at the zelda themed pdp wired GameCube controller for switch. It's only $15 on Amazon but I've read some mixed reviews. I know theres also the power a and hori.. anyone have experience with these and know which GameCube style controller is the better of the bunch?

@NintendoByNature I have one of those that I only break out for multiplayer nights, and it's always worked fine. Though it really depends on what you need, are you looking for something to use regularly or only for friends when they come over?

@Loxy Please don't beg for money. Also, at this time of year, is it not possible your parents wouldn't want you to buy games so that they can give them to you for Christmas?

@link3710 just for fun every now and then. I really like the right stick can be swapped for a full size one but I'm worried it'll be fragile because of it. How is it?

@NintendoByNature I'll be honest, I totally just went to pull it out and take a look, and I realized it's the PowerA themed wired controller not the PDP wired gamecube style controller whoops. Shows how often I use it.

@link3710 no problem. I think the power A is only 16 bucks so either way, they're both inexpensive. But I don't want to waste the time or money if they're cheap and fragile

That looks a sweet update. Can't wait.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Such a cool update. I still play smm2 every now and then. This new zelda aspect will definitely drag me back in more.

I wonder if they have other power ups planned for the future. Maybe add the Screw Attack, which turns you into Samus, with matching abilities (Morph Ball, Missles, Wave and/ or Ice Beam, etc).

Despite the late date, I'm thoroughly impressed. Most of those updates are clearly going to give some serious new features to incorporate into courses, P-Blocks being my personal favorite. Plus, that's an amazing power-up... too bad it's limited to SMB.

That's a pretty hefty free update. The Zelda thing is surprisingly deep. I thought it was gonna be just a cosmetic difference.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

@iKhan, what about Ratchet & Clank, the Gravity Rush games, Tearaway Unfolded, Astro Bot, the Everybody's Golf games, Concrete Genie, MediEvil, the Knack games, and the Last Guardian?

Granted, there's a few mediocre games in there (and a few are enhanced Vita releases if those don't count for whatever reason), but after owning a PS4 for awhile I'm surprised the myth of them only putting out hyper realistic looking games still persists (though I'll admit many of their bigger marketed games fall into this category).

Very fair point. I definitely forgot about The Last Guardian, Ratchet and Clank, and Knack and I have never heard of Everybody's Golf, Concrete Genie, and MediEvil. I wasn't really considering Vita remakes, mainly because the main gripe I'm expressing is Sony's unwillingness to utilize the PS4's power to create interesting and appealing art styles. Also, though I'm pretty sure that it was implied by my original post, I'm talking about Sony published exclusives, so games like Ni No Kuni II doesn't count.

I think the reason a lot of people think that Sony is only putting out hyperrealistic games is because that's pretty much all they are heavily publicizing. It's pretty much everything they talk about at E3, and the fact that I had never heard of three of the games you mentioned is indicative of how little Sony stresses them.

Even during launch, Sony's first big titles were Infamous: Second Son and The Order: 1886. Microsoft's first big titles were Killer Instinct and Sunset Overdrive. The perception wasn't helped out by the fact that Sony pretty much gave Japanese developers the cold shoulder this gen (Where stylized visuals tend to be more common)

Currently Playing: Steamworld Heist, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Man, I just had to go back to watch the Ratchet & Clank trailer. Still, haven't gotten to play that game (well the remake anyways), but my gosh is it gorgeous looking.

@iKhan They definitely did advertise Knack too during launch... then it became a meme and Sony started avoiding advertising cartoony games. Not sure if that was cause and effect or just Sony being Sony though.

I might start playing SMM2 again once that Master Sword drops. It seems like a VERY different sort of character. Although I do hope we get some Zelda-themed enemies and items to go with it at some point.

Wow, that's awesome, @Toy_Link .... Might be a good idea for them to port 1&2 before that, though?

@BruceCM The trouble is that 1 & 2 are published by a different company in the West. NIS ports everything to Switch, but Marvelous USA (AKA XSEED) generally doesn't port to new platforms.

This will have a Persona 5 S problem, because these games are highly interconnected story-wise.

Falcom’s The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 is coming to Switch in Spring 2020. It will be published (and presumably ported by) Nis America.

It would've been very foolish for Falcom not to support a successful platform like the Switch. Happy, they changed their minds.

If it's bitter at the start, then it's sweeter in the end.

Reading Metro 2034 & The second novel of The Saga of Tanya The Evil, also reading the manga 5-8 at the moment( both are stellar may I add).
